A few weeks ago, I blogged about upcoming National Days and ways to incorporate them into your schools. Everyone loved it and asked that I continue it, so here are National Days for August. There are a ton this month, so don’t feel like you need to do them all. Pick your top 2 or 3 and have fun!
August 6th – National Wiggle Your Toes Day
Practicing and performing pedicures isn’t the most glamorous part of our industry, so use this day to have some fun with it. Offer discounted pedicure services to your clients and allow all the students to receive a free pedicure this day. Make it even more fun buy having a fun competition on best summer nail polish design!
August 8th – National Happiness Happens Day
The purpose of this day is to celebrate the expression of happiness! Use this day to remind students how excited they first were when they started school. Try to tap into that happiness and excitement every day!
August 12th – National Vinyl Record Day
This day is for those of us who grew up listening to vinyl records. Bring in that record player, along with your favorite albums and share the awesome music you grew up with on the student salon for the day.
August 13th – National Left-Handers Day
Use the day to appreciate all the left-handed students in your school. Have a fun competition between right-handed students by having them create fingerwaves, pincurls, rollersets or perm wraps all left-handed. All your left-handed students to be the judge!
August 17th– National I LOVE My Feet Day
If you didn’t get the chance to celebrate National Wiggle Your Toes Day on the 6th, celebrate I LOVE My Feet Day with pedicures and fun polish designs.
August 19th – International Bow Day
Channel your inner JoJo Siwa (if you don’t have girls under 13, you probably don’t know who this is!) by wearing a great big fun bow for the day! Have clients judge who wore it best!
August 21st – National Brazilian Blowout Day
Take this day to educate students on a subject you might not get to spend much time on.
August 21st – National Senior Citizens Day
Offer discounted services to all senior citizens and say thank you for your business.
August 30th – National College Colors Day
Give dress code a break and have each student dress in the colors for their favorite college. I’ll be in Texas Tech red and black!
August 31st – National Trail Mix Day
Bring in trail mix for everyone as an afternoon break or theory treat.
August 1 – 7th– National Cleanse Your Skin Week
Have your esthetics students give lessons to clients on the best way to cleanse their skin.
Week of August 16th – National Elvis Week
Let’s break out the Elvis music this week and have hairstyling/haircutting contests to celebrate the fashion and style from the 50s.
August is Back to School Month
